Robot meetup


During a 10 mile drive,

passed the robotics meetup.

It was intriguing to see another lunchbox in his photos.

The warehouse had been recently renovated. There was a bathroom & desperately needed drinks for the lions running 10 miles with robots. The CEO of Autodesk owned it & might be trying to start a self driving car startup. Of course, all the bigwigs were long gone by the time the lion kingdom drove up & the crowd which much thinner.

There were a few hobbyists working on similar 1/10 vehicles. They were all using webcams & pi cams to try to navigate the indoor track. Documented just the track, in case inspiration struck. It's basically a line following problem, with lines of much less contrast than historic contests.

Started out in robotics by reading http://www.robotroom.com/ That guy was incredibly dedicated to just line following, for many years. Line following remanes a toy problem. The lion kingdom would be ecstatic if he focused just on a segment of pavement with variable shadows, rather than getting distracted by line following.

Speaking of Autodesk, as of 2013 SpaceX was using Siemens NX, not Autodesk Inventor for its CAD. Autodesk needs to buy out Siemens.
